No place like London.

Interprétée par Johnny Depp et Jamie Campbell Bower.

I have sailed the world.
beheld its wonders.
from the Dardanelles.
To the mountains of Peru.
But there’s no place like London.

(Sweeney Todd)
No, there’s no place like London.

Mr. Todd ?

(Sweeney Todd)
You are young.
Life has been kind to you.
You will learn.

There’s a hole in the world like a great black pit.
And the vermin of the world inhabit it.
And its morals aren’t worth what a pig could spit.
And it goes by the name of London.

At the top of the hole sit a privileged few.
Making mock of the vermin in the lower zoo.
Turning beauty to filth and greed.
I too have sailed the world and seen its wonders.
For the cruelty of men is as wondrous as Peru.
But there’s no place like London.

Is everything alright Mr. Todd ?

(Sweeney Todd)
I beg your indulgence, Anthony.
My mind is far from easy.
In these once familiar streets, I feel.
Shadows, everywhere.

There was a barber and his wife.
And she was beautiful.
A foolish barber and his wife.
She was his reason and his life.
And she was beautiful.
And she was virtuous.
And he was…naive.

There was another man who saw.
That she was beautiful.
A pious vulture of the law.
Who with a gesture of his claw.
Removed the barber from his plate.
Then there was nothing but to wait.
And she would fall.
So soft.
So young.
So lost.
And oh, so beautiful.

And the lady, sir.
Did she succumb ?

(Sweeney Todd)
Oh, that was many years ago.
I doubt if anyone would know.

I’d like to thank you, Anthony.
If you hadn’t spotted me.
I’d be lost in the ocean still.

Will I see you again ?

(Sweeney Todd)
You may find me, if you like.
Around Fleet Street, I wouldn’t wonder.

Until then, my friend.

(Sweeney Todd)
There’s a hole in the world like a great black pit.
And it’s filled with people who are filled with shit.
And the vermin of the world inhabit it.
